Talking Consent With Your Teen and Tween: How To Have These Must Have Conversations
Show Notes

When it comes to talking to our tweens and teens about sex or consent, it's intimidating and scary. What do you say? How to know where to start? How do you say it in a way that will sink in? 

Talking about relationships, sex, and consent can be intimidating, particularly when it comes to our kids. 

But we must have them. The statistics are staggering by the time a girl has graduated from college the statistics are one in four that have been sexually assaulted.   

Today I’m interviewing Christy Keating with the Heartful Parent - who is an expert on consent. Christy worked as a licensed attorney, specializing in the prosecution of sexually violent predators. Christy has a unique perspective on the importance of teaching our kids about consent.

Talking points:

  • What your tween/teen needs to know about consent
  • What is consent & building confidence with saying no
  • Recommendations and resources  to get started
  • Empowering your tweens or teens around consent
  • The Acronym of Consent
